CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A 2-foot-long male ball python snake was stolen from a Chambersburg pet store Monday afternoon by three white males between the ages of 16 and 20, according to Chambersburg Police.
The thieves were seen in the area of the snake's cage at the entrance to the reptile room of JS&K Pets, 133 Derbyshire St., police said.
One of them wore a black trench coat and one had black, shoulder-length hair and a goatee, police said.
They made off with the python at 4:19 p.m. after one of the thieves distracted employee Scott Dayhoff by calling him over to another part of the store, Dayhoff said.
